Sholay the 1975 classic curry western has been restored and opened to packed crowds in Bombay! The BBC reports that tickets to the movie are being sold in the black market. I don’t think I actually saw Sholay as a kid, but such was its power that I could recite several lines of dialogue at the drop of a hat. Later, for many of my colleagues at University, it became the fodder for our term papers. We owe our degrees to Sholay. Some time ago I showed this movie to a few old ladies in rural Minnesota, they found Sanjeev Kumar cute,” and now he is back! in technicolor and digitally restored audio.
